Just when things were looking good for Warner Bros. DCEU after the release of Wonder Woman and Aquaman, The Flash brings back memories of how the shared universe continues to struggle. In the latest bit of news, Ezra Miller reportedly seems to be very unhappy with the direction that the speedster is heading towards in the standalone film and is now working with DC comics writer Grant Morrison on a brand new script that will compete against the one being written by directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein.
